30th birthday!

Hello blog world! I've missed you and I hate that I've been away for so long! I'm going to try to at least blog from my phone since I am not spending much down time on my computer anymore! 

Last week, I started out my birthday celebration with a girls trip to Grapevine, TX! Mom, P and I did this last year and had a blast so we went for 2 nights to the Gaylord Texan and spent a day at their water park! We ate good Mexican food, rented a cabana for a day, swam with some good friends, relaxed and had a great time! I had my first Drybar experience and shopped at the Northpark mall in Dallas before heading home! 

If you have read my blog for many years, you will remember that I always spend my birthday at a church camp with Matt's family. Matt and I basically met out there and I have been with him every year for the last 13 years. Needless to say, this was incredibly difficult to attend this year. I made it out there for a few hours and decided I would just have to try again next year! :( But P had a blast at her 2nd Campmeeting! 

Then I was blessed with a family dinner party with Matt's mom, Steve, brother Andy & wife Chelsey along with my parents, brother & his family! We ate at my favorite, Outback and had yummy cake! I loved seeing our kids dancing and having fun together. 

Lastly, I have gotten about 50 birthday cards from blog readers and let me just say how sweet it is to read each one and know that I have so many prayers still be said for us! You will never know how much it meant to me to be showered by birthday love! Just one of the many reasons, I love the blog world and why I am not going to give up blogging even though I've done a horrible job keeping up in the last 10 months! Thanks for hanging with me and for the continuos thoughts, prayers and love! And thank you again for making my 30th birthday so special!!
